First Congregational Church has an active music program for children and students, led by Youth Choir Director Cathy Bixby. “We choose a variety of songs through the year so that the young children learn traditional Bible songs, carols and spirituals. As they mature, they learn to sing in parts to teach them how to harmonize. While the children are a special part of our services, we also believe it’s important to help them learn about music,” Cathy says.
The youth music program is open to all young people, including non-members, with a full range of experience and talent levels.
Youth Choir is open to to students in 3rd through 8th grade. This choir rehearses at 6 pm on Wednesdays throughout the school year and sings during the Sunday worship service once a month. Several times a year, older children come together to create music with Tone Chimes. They rehearse once a week for four weeks leading up to a Sunday worship service.
